two pillar candles

Have you ever noticed how smells can impact how you feel?

As the dinner bell is about to ring, the aroma of the meal wafts through your home. Your mouth waters in anticipation. It’s amazing that the mere scent can make you more hungry. And food that smells good always seems to taste better.

It’s the same with candles. Burning a candle in your home spreads your chosen fragrance, and you just feel better about, well, everything.

I’m fortunate that my husband enjoys candles as much as I do. We recently spent quite a bit of time in our local candle shop choosing just the right one. The moment the bouquet reaches our nose, we immediately know if it’s a go or a no. (You should have seen the look on our faces when we once checked out a “beer” candle. A definite “no”…)

Our most recent find was Midnight Blue Citrus from Bath and Bodyworks. We’ve enjoyed it so much that in less than a week, we need to return for another. The essence from just this one candle can be experienced throughout the entire house.

So light up…a candle, that is.


Stay groovy…
